COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We’re proud to announce the new Summit Sága IPA, a decidedly different hop-forward brew due out in early May 2012. The beer has pronounced hop flavors and aromas of kiwi, passionfruit, apricot and gooseberry. Clean, assertive bitterness with balancing Pale malt characteristics. We hop it with the rare New Zealand Rakau hop along with Citra, Centennial and Amarillo. Named after the Norse Goddess of Poetry, who was the God Odin’s drinking companion... also, it was quite a saga to pick a name!

Got this from Cub Liquor for first try. Tasted great with steak on the grill with asparagus and mashed potatoes. Will probably try again.

HIGHB4LL (475) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 9, 2014
On tap in Minot ND. Aroma: Appearance: finger white head, golden amber color, clear. Aroma: floral, pine, caramel, light citrus. Palate: average carbonation, bitter finish, sticky texture. Taste:caramel malt sweetness into light pine sweet with plenty of bitterness coming up on the back. Overall, a bit too sweet for me, but other than that, amazing.

Summit Brewing Company has been around since the 1980’s. Back in those days our need for hoppy pale ales was low. In this day and age it is much higher. Summit finally caught up with the rest of the IPA world with this top aromatic brew.

harrymel (1496) - Spokane, Washington, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Canned for best by 12SEP14 It’s a ruddy apricot colored ale with a solid white top. Smells resiny, some pine, some grapefruit and other citrusy notes. Flavor is rather tame with biscuit, sweet light malts, some bits of fruity hop, but rather subdued. Clean and drinkable, but nothing special. Medium bodied with moderate carb and a mildly dry finish.

Flavor is heavy hops and bitterness, supporting crisp malt, light fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with thick white head that lasts leaving sticky lacing. Floral hop aroma and resin. Similar flavor to aroma with nice light bitterness. Decent.

BreWedge (309) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 22, 2014
12 Fl Oz bottle. Pours a clear yellow with a small white head. Aromas are heavy citrus, fruit, and a touch of pine. Tastes are fruit, plenty of malt, and an astringent bitterness. Light to medium body, smooth (almost creamy), assertive carbonation, and a medium astringent finish. Nice beer though I have to admit this sample was drank well after the “drink by” date.
